've been told they have been reviewing and updating the benghazi report. that report was supposed to come out, come to her this week. she was supposed to testify at two very high profile hearings, senate and house hearings on the benghazi investigation this coming thursday. now obviously that is not going to take placement whether they have that hearing and have someone substitute for her is another question. but she is going to remain home all week. and apparently fell and suffered a concussion as a result of her dehydration from this stomach virus. alex? >> andrea, so you described her, she has a work horse ethic. i'm sure saturday at the office is not unique to her. so you can confirm she was not at the office, she was at home when this accident happened? >> reporter: yes. that she has been home according to the state department, she's been home since she returned from that trip about a week ago. and then did not depart again, i think she returned friday night from overseas, was supposed to leave again on monday. we all saw her last at the kennedy -- before that trip at the kennedy hon
hearings, all kinds of speeches, all kinds of accusations in the benghazi matter. let's see what the congress does now. and certainly, the president will provide the kind of leadership that is necessary. but it is time. after tucson, after arizona, a member of congress was shot in the head, and there was no response on the issue of gun safety and gun regulations by the united states congress. so we don't need anymore speeches. we need action. we've tried, many of us at the local level and certainly mayor bloomberg and mayor menino, their partnership, mayors against illegal guns. these guns, it's reported, were legally purchased, but obviously, improperly used. clearly, should have been locked up. the gun is gentleman is reported to have maybe have had some mental health challenges. so why would you leave that kind of weaponry, that kind of firepower available to someone who may be struggling from a mental health standpoint? so all of us have a responsibility here, everyone needs to get involved, the american people have had enough. their voices need to be heard and congress needs
on what went wrong in benghazi. that's one big thing. she is -- she had a concussion, we are told. she fainted after being dehydrated from a result of that stomach flu we were told about last monday when unexpectedly secretary clinton postponed a trip to places in the region for suggestions on the syrian opposition. in her place, veteran diplomat deputy secretary william burns went in hjertstedt. she's just come back from a rip during which she and head of policy planning and other top officials all got sick. so that was hornlgly postponed from monday to tuesday. then clear she was not going to be well enough in turn they -- the trip would be taken instead by her deputy. it is not clear when she actually fell and how long she has been suffering from the concussion. it is very, very difficult to get information on her actual health because they are being very, very privilege at about it. >> butter with to understand that she's at home recovering right now. andrea mitchell, thank you so much. if there is an update do come back. >>> up next, we will bring you more on the latest in the inv
